If a thing is to succeed it needs love.
Love first from it's author, the instrument of creation.
Love second - and most importantly - from it's audience.
I wanted to thank you for support of the Captain - my Captain - Captain Stone. It's our second most popular title after Dave Gibbon's Treatment, and that's saying something! (If I can't concede the top slot to the mighty Dave Gibbons who can I concede to?)
It was not an easy start for the book I co-created with my wife, Christina. It's taken time to find its feet, and a place in the pantheon. It was, after all, created in a completely new medium. And it wasn't strictly a comic at all, but something else that used the tropes
of comics - words and pictures, but with added sound and motion. These have long been troublesome additions to the purist reader!
It has been created in multiple styles, and it is a VERY slow burn.
It features a retro hero in a pink costume - who is missing. This was not hip!
It utilizes captions to a degree unheard of since the late 80s, and generally not advised.
And it had to contend with fear - that digital would kill print. In fact the opposite has happened. And I'm VERY excited to be able to say that the print version hits comic stores in December, via Titan and Diamond.
So again - thank you for reading our book. It matters
. It is
appreciated. It validates everything
I have been trying to do for the last five or six years. Your feedback at the New York Comic Con, here, and in the number of reads the book has had has been a massive validation for me. I can't stress enough what that means.
Best always - and onwards!liamsharp.deviantart.com/favou…
